I recently completed a 40 Hr domestic violence advocacy training with La Casa and it was one of the most enlightening and engaging small-group learning experiences I've been through. La Casa is thorough, highly attuned to the specific issues that face the San Francisco Bay Area community, and extremely engaged. The community leaders they brought in to lead various parts of the training were equally passionate and knowledgeable. I'm looking forward to volunteering with La Casa and am grateful for having been able to work and grow with them.
La casa has been great in providing shelter when my niece had no one to turn to. She's in the bay area away from her family and when she was faced with DV, she had no support from us. At the hospital she was referred to La Casa by her nurse and was accepted to the shelter program. Thank you for everything you do!
La Casa's life-saving services are needed in cities everywhere and we are lucky to have such a strong and compassionate organization in San Francisco. Leading the way for over 40 years, I am grateful to be a small part of a critical continuum of care.
I have been an employee at La Casa for almost 3 years. The work that is done throughout this organization is incredible. One of the best things about La Casa is that we are placed all over the city throughout different facilities. This allows us to meet survivors where they are currently rather than only being available in one location. We are able to meet and help more survivors this way.
The people who work here are passion about the work which makes it that much better. I am very proud to work for such an amazing organization.
La Casa does an amazing job teaching the community and changing public perceptions about domestic violence. I have learned so much about the pervasive and prevalent notions that continue to perpetuate violence in our society, how it is interwoven in so many aspects of daily life. La Casa taught me about restorative justice, how to talk to survivors, and what to do even within my family and community to address these difficult topics and challenge the conversation so people may be more aware of how to discuss handle discuss the deep issues within the microcosm of their family, friends, and community unit.
La casa is well-known in the community because of the work they do. La Casa's commitment to ensure safety and put an end to domestic violence, puts the organization at the forefront of the cause. La casa also employs advocates whom are passionate about the work they do.
La Casa does critical work for the community and ensures that all women and children have a safe place to go when they need it most. Staff is committed, volunteers are devoted and compassionate, and the survivors that seek their services are an inspiration to all of us.
From their caring staff and the full spectrum of resources that they provide to women and children, to their forward-thinking community education and outreach programs, this organization is taking the lead to empower survivors and end the cycle of domestic violence.
I've been a volunteer with La Casa de las Madres for years and am still overwhelmed but the compassion and energy exhibited by everyone involved with this organization. Their approach is multi-faceted- offering immediate and continued support to empower survivors of domestic violence, while continuously reaching out to the community with innovative methods to educate and prevent the cycle of violence. There is a tremendous need for these services in our community and La Casa's is commitment is commendable.
La Casa provides critical services for women and children in need of shelter and support. Staff is dedicated and compassionate. Volunteers are kind, thoughtful and committed. La Casa's 42 years of service and commitment to serving those in needs is remarkable.
La Casa has been a wonderful place to work. I feel inspired by my colleagues and have the ability to explore my interests in the work place while doing meaningful work that I am passionate about. Staff is welcoming, patient and compassionate. I am lucky to work with such smart, kind people.
I completed domestic violence advocacy training at La Casa De Las Madres. The staff and training were great and helpful. Enjoyed training with great people.
I recently completed La Casa de las Madres' 40-hour Domestic Violence training offering an incredible amount of information for compassionate, conscientious, resource rich trauma informed care. I feel that I have taken away a great deal from those who came to speak to us about their work and was really quite deeply moved throughout the week. I would surely recommend this training and this organization to anyone seeking training or resources.
I have volunteered with Casa De Las Madres. They provide a very important service for the community with counseling and support, as well as the drop in center and shelter. They are also a strong voice and advocate for many who feel that they are unable to speak up. The staff and volunteers are extremely helpful, knowledgeable and supportive.
I volunteered on the event committee with La Casa — this is a group of extremely hard-working and dedicated people who are truly passionate about the mission of the organization. Not only do they provide a service for a real need in San Francisco, they have also become a strong, powerful voice in the community raising awareness about an issue that is too often put in the dark.
I am a current employee at La Casa de las Madres and I have been with the organization for 7 months. I started my journey in the nonprofit sector in hope of creating positive change at scale and that is exactly what La Casa is doing today.
I stand with La Casa because I am passionate and determined to make a difference in peoples lives - today - tomorrow - and for future generations. I believe in La Casa's mission and I too envision a society where violence is not tolerated and all individuals and families have equal access to basic resources and a safe place to call home.
I enjoy working with my team, I feel motivated and inspired every day. In my current position I have the opportunity to create awareness, educate, and inspire others to make a difference. I look forward to the future and I am excited to see La Casa grow in years to come.
I began participating in La Casa’s events several years ago and grew inspired to volunteer after seeing their community impact and meeting so many wonderful people. La Casa is an indispensable advocate, motivating themselves and others to help continue the ongoing expansion and improvement of essential services.
I have volunteered with La Casa for over a year now and have found the work to be incredibly fulfilling. The people I have met, (employees, volunteers & clients) are incredibly kind, generous and inspiring. I especially recommend the 40-hour training that La Casa provides - it was both informative and engaging.
I look forward to working further with this amazing organization.
Just last night, a woman approached me asking for money - in San Francisco this happens all the time. What stood out to me is what she was asking for, she needed $40 to get to a woman's shelter in San Mateo, because La Casa was full. This broke my heart, when a woman gets the courage to finally say ENOUGH and get out of a bad situation, she should not have to go to another city to get help. This is why I volunteer with La Casa De Las Madres, so we can raise enough money to open up more beds in the shelter and get help to women and families when needed.
La Casa has had a tremendous impact on the San Francisco community thanks to their holistic approach (advocacy, community education, shelter services, and survivor resources) and stellar leadership. They very effectively allocate their resources, operating with a streamlined staff, focusing on critical needs, and working with committed and well-trained volunteers when possible. I’m proud to have worked with their organization in various capacities for nearly ten years (donor, volunteer, Steering Committee member) and am excited to continue to support them in the future.
I'm a volunteer with La Casa and I can't say enough about this wonderful organization. La Casa doesn't merely raise awareness for their cause, they actually provide services and effect real change in their community. As a volunteer, I hear survivor stories all the time and have seen first-hand the type of invaluable help La Casa provides -- from their hotline, to their shelter, to their work with schools, the police, and San Francisco in general -- they are an essential organization to the SF Bay Area. They care deeply about their clients and do such an amazing job providing them with services. I'm honored to work with them!
La Casa De Las Madres supports women in crisis, need, or transition. The crisis hotline helps. The safe housing provides a solution to issues that arise through broken homes, IPV, and or the streets.
